It's nice to see this thread bumped.
I appreciate it even though I know it's mostly sarcasm.
Look obviously the Lakers are going to have a tough time this season, but that's okay. Dwight leaving was a great thing for this franchise. Every report I read shows less humility, more idiocy, and more immaturity. I think him leaving is a great thing. Now we start the rebuild this season and get a decent draft pick in a good draft as opposed to starting next season fully dependent on free agent signings.
As for all this doom and gloom around here, shape up ya'll. When you KNOW the going is tough, why complain about the going? It's over. Just accept it and make the most of it.
Hopefully Mitch finds a way to get one or two young guys to buy in and then fills the roster with old friends. It'd be nice to have a team we all enjoy rooting for even if they're not going to be very good.
